Hey guys,i know this question has been posted many times but im just not getting convinced..
Anyway..
Im just really confused if i should upgrade my pc (only need new video card) or grab a ps4

PC:
-pros: -way better graphics
-feel the game more
-more control of aiming(since using a mouse)
-just feels more comfortable
-Can download games

Cons:
-Run into lots of errors every now nd then
-amount of players is really low compared to consoles
-need to upgrade each while
-awesome games usually come to consoles before(eg gta 5)

PS4
-pros:
- so many players
-i can play with all my mates
-easy to use(just put in cd and play)
-no need to upgrade each year

Cons:
-playing with a controller is really weird
-games are more expensive

There is no right or wrong answer. But, if you have not pre-ordered a PS4, chances are you will not be getting one anything soon. You are going to have to take how long you are willing to wait in consideration. Can you save your money for months without spending it? Also, another point to consider is if you get the card now you can always get the PS4 in year and get a lot of games for a fraction of the price they are going to be around launch.

don't expect anyone here at toms to recommend a console over a pc. everyone here shall claim to have no bias (but ironically totally is). this kind of decision should be done with your own self consciousness by weighing the pros and cons yourself. others will simply put their own ideals first and disregard your own good just to prove that the pc is better for everyone (a topic that is an individual preference and not a universal fact). man up and make that decision man. who'd you rather trust? a total stranger from the internet? or you, yourself who is going to be using the system?

You already have a gaming machine, if you throw $400 at a new graphics card you will get performance way above what next-gen console could achieve.

Personally, I have no plans to get a PS4 until it has a price-drop, even then I would only be picking it up for exclusives. As for the social element of gaming, play online games, have a mic and make some. DOTA 2 I find is a great place to meet people (as well as being way too addicting).
